Just a quick update,

I came in this morning and noticed it is making gurgling noises. Now this tank is in my office so it is unattended over the weekends. I noticed that my filter media was full, mostly mud. What's interesting is that I only have this running for almost 2 weeks.

The pump was pulling water faster in the second (right chamber) than the first (left chamber) can fill it with water. The water level was low in the pump chamber and I'm surprised that it did not burn out the motor or my heater

Just want to give anybody that has an Evolve or thinking of getting one to keep an eye on your filter.
